4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
First beer poured for my 28th birthday. What better way to reward yourself for making it another year on this planet than with Cantillon? Vigneronne pours a hazy golden orange, with a fingers of soapy looking white head. Nose is all muscat grapes and it is spectacular....probably the highlight of the beer for me. White wine and grape skin with some hints of lemon and just the slightest acetobacter. Muscat/white wine grapes arent as prominent in the flavor, but they are still one of the main themes. Itís focused particularly on the grape skin and lemony lactic acidtity. Mouthfeel is light, carbonation is low to moderate, good sharp acidity, and a moderate finish. Another great fruit lambic from Cantillon. Having had this a few times, I think I actually prefer it aged as opposed to fresh. It loses some of the gentle grape character as it ages, but it becomes incredibly more sour.

Pours light hazy straw. Nice white foam on the edges of the glas.
The nose has apples and lemon, some hay, some candy apple, yellow raisin and even a hint of apricot. Awsome nose
Taste is light fruity with elderflover sweetness initially turning mineral and turns lemon bitter. The hint of fruit in this lambic is brilliant. Mouthcoating and long lasting, dry aftertaste. I got maximum sourness and acidity in the aftertaste which was great. Love this one!

Bottle at Frankís. Thank you whoever brought. Nice big white grapey sour. Tons of acidity, maybe itís just the other sours weíve had before this one but pretty intense. Theyíre starting to blend together at this point but Iíd like it on its own for sure.

Sampled @The Festival in Florida. Aroma: loads of green sour apples and lots of acidity notes. App: hazy straw, no head. Taste and palate: light body, soft carbonation but tingling, dry sour finish. Overall: awesome. Great palate. So dry that I want to get another sip to quench my thirst.

A+ the white wine grapes with a lambic base is one of best combos in my opinion. A guy named Vinnie in Cali does a great job too. The grapes add a perception of sweetness to balance out tart. The light oak and funk was as well perfectly balanced with the sourness. A stranded island beer!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml bottle. Straw gold with white head at first, then quickly nothing. Aroma is full of white grape, lemon, melon rind and the signature Cantillon wildness. Taste is sour, juicy, quenching. Balanced as usual. Great from start to finish.
